Guiding Eyes for the Blind

  • banner-platform.jpg
At Guiding Eyes for the Blind, we change lives by connecting amazing people with extraordinary dogs. 

$50,000. That's the cost of preparing our students and dogs to become a Guiding Eyes team and to support them through a lifetime partnership. We are committed to never charging a person who needs one of our dogs to help live their fullest life. 
For individuals who are blind or visually impaired, a Guiding Eyes dog means freedom, confidence, and the opportunity to experience all of life’s adventures – big and small. 

But we can’t do it alone. Become a Guiding Eyes fundraiser today to help support a mission that gives dogs a purpose and those with vision loss a grander world to experience.

Few events bring a community together like Bruce Stark's annual fundraiser, when the Upper West Side comes out in droves to support their favorite local business - Beacon Paint & Hardware. Bruce and his family raise money for Guiding Eyes in honor of their late sister, Marcia, who received two guide dogs from the school in the '70s.  

Meeting Point:
Corner of Columbus Ave. & 76th Street
